Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

thanks

(8)Lucie Safarova (CZE) v Varvara Lepchenko (USA)
Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) v Jie Zheng (CHN)
Q v Q
(2/wc)Petra Kvitova (CZE) v BYE

not the best draw tbh Lepchenko in good form, Zheng is always hard and then Kvitova...oh well

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Bad draw.


I can totally see Lepchenko taking her out in R1 Hopefully she doesnt.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I think she is gonna be 16 seed at the USO with Pavs loss today she should be 17 in the rankings next week and Kanepi is out...so she'll be seeded to make R4

That'll just be more embarrassing when she loses R1

I hate that Kanepi had to WD, but Lucie getting the 16 seed makes it a little bit better
She better not lose in R1

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Yeah I like Kaia too, and its so tough for her that shes been in great form this year and still top 15 despite all her injury timeouts, but she just cant string weeks together.

But yeah it's good to be a top 16 seed because she cant draw a top player until R4 But like I said now a round 1 loss would be more embarrassing.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I was hoping for the 17th seed honestly. If she were in the 17-24 bracket then she could potentially face someone in the 5-8 group as a 4th round match. Now that she is the 16th seed she will be guaranteed to face a top 4 seed in round 4.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

You never know. Last year she had a chance to reach SF but Kerber got there being ranked about #35 I think

Honestly...if she made R4 and lost to top 4 I would be thrilled

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

True lol. I'd just rather take the risk of her playing someone ranked 9-16 in round three as opposed to be guaranteed to play one of the top four seeds in Round 4. I really really want to be ambitious and see her make another slam QF, but the top 4 seeds are TOUGH this slam with the exception of Radwanska.

Considering she's won 1 match in slams all year and it was against Yakimova, I honestly think it's ambitious to say she'll make R4, even making R3 can be a stretch for her.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I tend to agree it would be a miracle if she lived up to her seeding this year and would be very embarrassing if another round one exit occurs. Especially as last year... no can't remember what happened there...

Anyway, before that it's New Haven and Lucie beat Lepchenko by a retirement win. Service stats are excellent again. Lucie seems destined not to play Kvitova so I expect she'll withdraw or one or the other will lose before the QF.

Now I've finally found,

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Kvitova said shes going to play there but Lucie will have a tough round 2 so it could be prevented once again.

Who wants to make a US Open thread btw?
